Addressing heart disease in all its forms

Heart disease is common in Louisiana, and our primary care providers are skilled in identifying and managing some of the most common heart disease risk factors—high blood pressure, unhealthy cholesterol levels and smoking. They can help you avoid devastating consequences of heart disease, such as heart attack and stroke.

But when your heart does need more intensive care, our cardiologists can detect and treat heart and vascular conditions, including:

  • Atrial fibrillation, or irregular heartbeat
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Heart valve disease
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Venous disease

A picture of health

The best way to treat a heart attack or heart condition is to prevent it from happening in the first place. The problem is, many heart conditions cause symptoms, such as fatigue, that can be hard to tie to a specific problem.

Our facilities have advanced screening and diagnostic capabilities to identify early warning signs of conditions that can potentially be fatal.

  • Coronary calcium scores can help us identify your risk of a future heart attack.
  • Ultrasounds use sound waves to create pictures of your heart, arteries and blood vessels to identify blockages that could lead to serious problems.
  • Electrophysiology studies provide valuable data about your heart’s electrical activity.

Don’t ignore potential problems. If you have symptoms that seem unusual, talk to your primary care provider about a referral to an LCMC Health cardiologist for screening.

The right treatment for you and your heart

When it comes to treating heart attacks, you can trust that LCMC Health emergency rooms are equipped to deliver the lifesaving care you need within minutes of your arrival.

For other forms of heart disease, however, there are no one-size-fits-all solutions. Our cardiology teams make sure that the treatments we provide fit you and your lifestyle and allow your heart to regain function so you can enjoy a better quality of life. Our expert cardiovascular and vascular surgeons specialize in advanced procedures, such as:

  • Aneurysm repair
  • Heart transplant
  • Pacemaker and implantable cardioverter defibrillator procedures
  • Stenting and angioplasty to open blocked arteries
  • Transcatheter aortic valve replacement

Cardiac rehab that gets you back on the road to recovery

It takes time to get back to daily life after a heart attack or heart surgery. And if you’ve been diagnosed with heart failure or another heart condition, you’ll need help adapting to the medications and lifestyle changes necessary to manage your condition.

Our medically supervised cardiac rehab programs guide people with heart conditions and those recovering from a serious cardiac event or procedure through a two- or three-phase program. Each phase involves nurses, therapists and exercise specialists who educate you about your condition or recovery needs, teach you exercises designed just for you and help you maintain a healthy lifestyle long after you leave the hospital.

We’re with you every step of the way.
